Inspired!

I was inspired to make this mirror after watching Cheryl and Megan on this weeks Tacco Tuesday video on TSS.
It used every piece of 'scrap' metal I owned!
After placing each 'scrap' onto the mirror with humungo tape, I went around each piece with a TSS wheel it made it look like it was stitched (close up), then I sanded the whole thing and everything 'popped'.
It was great fun to make and I used all those bits I just didn't know what to do with!

What a fantastic piece! I love the idea of the "stitching" between the pieces. I may have to borrow that idea!! :)
